Pope Stresses Need to Pray
Rosary for Peace

On February 21, 2003, John Paul II asked all Catholics worldwide to pray the Rosary, a “privileged instrument for building peace.”

The Pope continued, “War and injustice have their origins in the ‘divided’ heart. Anyone who assimilates the mystery of Christ — and this is clearly the goal of the Rosary — learns the secret of peace and makes it his life's project. If the Rosary keeps pace with the speed of our lives, it can become a privileged instrument for building peace in the hearts of persons, in families, and among peoples.”
